Day 356~366

Countdown at 10 now 🙂 Tonight I’ve been trying to shoot my fibre optic lamp, which is not as easy as I thought it would be, first I tried with the macro lens then with the 35mm and then I thought I’d move into the lounge and shoot it with some Christmas tree bokeh behind it, but that didn’t quite go to plan! 🙂 I think  the middle one will be my shot of the day, but the bottom one is my favourite 🙂

Day 352~366

Something a bit different to my night shots, the sun was shining today and low in the sky, Skye was sitting on the dining room table and shafts of sunlight came through and illuminated part of her. i tried to catch the light hitting her whiskers, and in her eyes too. this next is my shot of the day as the light hit her white tipped tail as well as her whiskers 🙂  

Day 328 & 329~366

Yesterday was cold but at least wasn’t raining when I finished work, so as I was in South Shields seeing a client, I hopped over to Little Sandhaven beach and took some shots with the ball. Just as I was finishing up the beginnings of a rainbow appeared over the sea, and I took some non-ball shots full strength but couldn’t fit it all in my frame so got out the phone and did a quick video I didn’t post last night as the cat hasn’t been all that well, and needed a  lot of cuddle time. We are thinking…

Day 322~366

Have been to work today, and the weather got steadily worse as the day went on, so thought I’d be having to do my shot indoors again this evening.  However, I was running early for an appointment, so stopped off at McDonalds for a drive through coffee, and whilst sitting in my car in the car park I had a visitor. As always my camera (and ball) bag ~ hmm think that sounds rude reading aloud in my head, never mind, you all know what I mean~were in the passenger seat, so I whipped them out and took a shot…

Day 317~366

I have a weekend home alone, as Phil is off to a scale model show in Telford, not back until Sunday night, and I have to cat~sit. Really the cat is doing the sitting, on my trackpad so that I can’t be on the computer, but she didn’t realise I have an emergency mouse, so on we go 🙂 The weather, always with the weather, has been dull, has been raining and cold, so no going out with the camera, but I gathered some fallen leaves from the front garden and did my autumn in a crystal ball shot. This…

Day 306~366

So on we go into November, and this month I am getting out my crystal balls and will be using them in my photography.  But first, I had a little fun last night with the trick or treaters who came to the house, and swapped a photograph for a treat. I do this every year and the kids are great round here, smiley and nice and polite. I don’t know any of them and most are with parents. So far no-one has given me grief for taking their kids pics,  but then most of the kids are in disguise! Also…

Day 300~366

Day 300, there’s a milestone 🙂 only 66 days to go, so light at the end of the tunnel.  Today is also exciting as the Woman~cave has arrived! Frego didn’t know it was coming. “Wow, look what’s turned up in the back garden! Where did THAT come from!?” ‘Surprise! This is your new home.’ “Woah! I’m going to live in it!?” ‘Sure, when it’s all kitted out with insulation and electricity and furniture & stuff.’ “It looks so big. I’ll get lonely” ‘Oh no, Skego will be with you and the other little people and The Bears, and I’ll be…
